BENEFITING: Food Lifeline
At Starbucks giving back to our communities is a core value. As we prepare for our Holiday season, we are reminded of how fortunate we are and want to provide comfort through a meal to hungry families in Western Washington.
Proceeds from this virtual food drive benefit Food Lifeline, a local organization working with the food industry to come up with creative solutions to stopping hunger, including redirecting good food from manufacturers, farmers, grocery stores and restaurants that might otherwise go to waste. Food Lifeline provide 82,000 meals a day to local food assistance programs through product donations and monetary contribution. Because of their unparalleled efficiency, Food Lifeline is able to provide four complete meals for what it would cost to purchase one can of food. So even a $10 donation can go a very long way.
